Designer Emilia Wickstead thinks Meghan Markle's wedding dress was "identical" to one of her designs.

Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, has officially received her very own customized coat of arms.

Featuring plenty of nods to Markle's home state of California, the coat of arms was gifted directly to Markle rather than to her father, which is a break in royal tradition.

The three quills represent communication and the power of words - no doubt a nod to Meghan's former lifestyle blog, The Tig, and her activism on gender equality and poverty.

The left half of the shield features the quartered British Royal Arms.

On the opposite side of Meghan's songbird is a lion, representing Harry.

Days after marrying Prince Harry, Kensington Palace on Friday announced the design on social media after it was approved by Queen Elizabeth.

Beneath the shield on the grass are golden poppies which are California's state flower. Interspersed with the poppies are wintersweet, which grows at the duchess' new home of Kensington Palace.

People said the design will likely be unveiled in a couple years.

They were granted the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the day of the wedding; they are also the Earl and Countess of Dumbarton and the Baron and Baroness of Kilkeel. The palace explained in a release that a married woman's coat of arms are combined with her husbands on the same shield.

As an American, Mr Markle could apply for honorary arms - in addition to meeting the standard criteria of eligibility, however, he would also have to demonstrate his descent from a subject of the British Crown.

"After her marriage, Catherine Middleton will place her father's Arms beside those of her husband in what is known as an impaled Coat of Arms".
